Let's get it out the way.

Dresden Chair by Libby Langdon for Braxton Culler

that chair is the bomb
post #5388 of 5399

That's a real hot seat.

 

That chair is hot fire.

 

That chair could brighten any room.

 

That chair has incendiary good looks.

 

That chair would be great in my flaming friend's apartment.

Well, boys, I think it is all about context and I am the last man who does not appreciate a crude joke. However, in this discussion I do find your comments tasteless and immature. But that's just me so carry on ...

 

More importantly, I was impressed by Fukasawa and his design mind. I am also impressed by maruni's manufacturing. I am a fan and completely find the price tag justified. Foo, you might have found your chairs?

catching up late. but on the counter argument, this will mark me as a terminal small-timer but i've got ikea butcher block. works great. has lasted 15+ years with only minimal maintenance. That's for dry counters, though. Around sinks, etc., you need something that will drain. I've still got the original 1930s tile in my kitchen. personally, i loathe marble and granite these days. mainly because of all the HG Househunters International episodes where someone will pass on a really cool kitchen in Italy and and go for something horrid because of the granite countertops in the kitchen. that and we've got them in the test kitchen and i just don't like working on them. foo.gif

we have ikea butcher block as well, and yeah, it's only for dry stuff. Stains really easily.


i dislike granite because it always looks like somebody puked all over the clean counter.

For all the hate on granite and its ubiquity...I don't mind it.

My current apartment is the first place I have lived with it (and it is a less pukish variety) and it seems pretty good. Cleans up easy, no staining, haven't been able to damage or mar the finish, nice for rolling out dough, etc.

I went with white macaubas - a natural quartzite. All of the hardiness pros of granite and the appearance pros of marble, with none of the maintenance cons of marble or ungliness cons of granite.

More expensive than most granites and most marbles (not high end marbles like calacatta), but looks fucking awesome and you don't have to worry about stains blah blah.

i don't worry too much about stains. in the food world, we call that "patina".

old and worn marble looks awesome

Agreed. I have a stone floor in a bathroom, and I can't be arsed to reseal it every year.

Nope, the original name of the chair is stupid, nothing wrong with joking about a stupid name.

Well the original name of the company is something like Hiroshima Wood Industry, so it kinda makes little sense. . .
